current planting opportunities

gainesville

NORTH FLORIDA

Population: 350,000

Why plant here? Because metro Gainesville is home to nearly 350,000 people, the home of the University of Florida with over 34,000 students, a city with a median age of 26 and our movement has no churches here. It is a city that has massive influence

throughout our state and around the country but is also a city heavily influenced by secularism. In short, this is a city that needs Jesus!

 

Fun Facts:  In 2022 it was voted the #37 best place to live in the US. Gatorade was invented at UF. The city has a large sinkhole called ‘Devil’s Millhopper’.

Cutler Bay, FL

Southern Miami/Dade Metro

Population: 287,505 (within a five mile radius)

Cutler Bay is a large city within the greater Miami metro area. Like the rest of Miami, it is a diverse and vibrant area full of life and growth but it is also one of the top fifty most Post-Christian cities in America. A healthy, growing church is needed to share the hope of Jesus. FCP is being given a church building and a few acres of land. The hope is to start both an English-speaking congregation and a Spanish-speaking congregation. A Hispanic planter has been found, but we continue to search for an English-speaking church

planter.


Fun Fact:  It is just 41 miles from Cutler Bay to Key Largo and only 29 miles to South Beach.
